Al-Farouq Aminu 19 Points Full Highlights (1/12/2018)

Al-Farouq Aminu always looks like a hobo. His nickname is “chief” but no African chief would be so undignified in their appearance. They would either have a real beard, or they would keep a close shave. They wouldn’t have a patchy hobo beard that looks like it was the result of two weeks’ neglect + a skin condition that causes bits of it to fall off at random.

Vagabaond-esque appearance aside, Aminu has carved himself out a predictable role in the NBA. He’s sort of a tweener/combo forward, but when he’s a power forward he can be the “stretch four” and when he’s a small forward he can be the “three and D guy”. Maybe not what people expected out of him when taken with the eighth overall pick, but definitely way better than a lot of the tweeners who get drafted high and then bust right out of the league. Where’s Derrick Williams anyway?
